Thingworx Helps EET Monitor Real-Time Energy Savings
Embedded Energy Technology (EET) wanted to build a dashboard for their customers to visualize the data analytics for the stream systems. They wanted the readings collected from the sensors to provide a complete picture of what is happening inside the component, and are displayed in a Web Portal that analyzes and presents the data in a concise format. The dashboard interface will also let customers set up email and text message alerts to be triggered when temperatures of the sensors customer select fall outside of the range they set. Summary reports are emailed monthly that highlight total energy savings, component health and month-over-month / year-over-year comparisons.

Equipment & Machinery
Founded in 2011, Embedded Energy Technology (EET) was the brainchild of a team of entrepreneurs who had previously worked for a company that developed a robotic inspection system. It incorporated sonar, laser and measurement sensors, for water treatment and sewer systems, an industry that had not really changed in a hundred years or more.
- CONNECTIVITY PROTOCOLS
ThingWorx platform's flexibility, and rapid application development tools, along with the look of the applications made it a much more practical proposition than building something from scratch. The work that was planned to create the new platform was scoped to be done by three developers, but due to the ease of use of the platform, Embedded Energy Technology only needed to have one developer.

- DATA COLLECTED
Alarms For Automated Applications, Control System Alert, Energy Cost Per Unit, Operating Cost, Temperature
- SOLUTION TYPE
- SOLUTION MATURITY
Mature (technology has been on the market for > 5 years)
- OPERATIONAL IMPACT
Impact #1 [Efficiency Improvement - R&D]
Ongoing application development and improvements are relatively quick and inexpensive to implement due to the system's flexibility.
Impact #2 [Cost Reduction - Procurement]
Total cost of ownership is lowered due to reduction in cost and development time.
Impact #3 [Efficiency Improvement - Operation]
Problems are indicated to line operators when the condition of a device or associated equipment changes beyond predetermined limits.
- QUANTITATIVE BENEFIT
The cost saving when implementing the solution justify the purchase of ThingWorx.
- USE CASES
Machine Condition MonitoringMachine condition monitoring is the process of monitoring parameters such as vibration and temperature in order to identify changes that indicate a reduction in performance or impending fault. It is a necessary component of predictive maintenance solutions and allows maintenance to be scheduled prior to failure, or other actions to be taken to prevent damages to the machine and loss of production. Condition monitoring also provides value beyond improving maintenance schedules. For example, improved visibility into machine operations can indicate the root causes of product defects and can support optimization of energy consumption.
